Authentication is handled out of the box by Laravel.

In Laravel 5.2, the controllers for authentication are:

  • app/Http/Controllers/Auth/AuthController.php
  • app/Http/Controllers/Auth/PasswordController.php

In Laravel 5.3, the controllers for authentication were split into 4:

Table of Contents

    • app/Http/Controllers/Auth/LoginController.php
    • app/Http/Controllers/Auth/RegisterController.php
    • app/Http/Controllers/Auth/ForgotPasswordController.php
    • app/Http/Controllers/Auth/ResetPasswordController.php

    The functionality is still the same, just a little movement of logic in the controllers.
